How well can computers connect symptoms to diseases?

Models that map these relationships based on patient data require fine-tuning for certain conditions, according to a study by MIT researchers, including a faculty member from IMES. A new MIT study finds “health knowledge graphs,” which show relationships between symptoms and diseases and are intended to help with clinical diagnosis,…
